Duplicate Column Name Warning

This warning prompt appears when the option Warn on duplicate columns in other books is set in the menu Tools | Spreadsheet Options | Books tab.

This prompt provides a warning that some names in this spreadsheet are currently being used in other open spreadsheets. This can cause problems in the statistical calculations, as the data in a structure using a duplicated name will change as the focus moves amongst the different spreadsheets. 

You should rename columns or close the other spreadsheets to avoid this becoming a problem. 

Columns names

This lists column names in the current spreadsheet that are duplicated in other spreadsheets.


Close the warning prompt.
